Obtaining accurate data from observation satellites is a valuable service for scientific centers that are engaged in environmental protection https://dragonflyaerospace.com/ The stability of all living things on the planet depends on the forecasts of weather and protection from negative impact, which brings modern production and spontaneous phenomena.

Amanda is consistently terrible and I've never once listened to an episode wishing she somehow participated. She makes everything worse and has awful opinions.

Hello World

Good lord, I hope they please stop having Adam Nayman on the podcast. What a miserable joyless person. I really feel bad for his inability to enjoy anything ever.

You stupid cunt. The law in Florida protects children against leftist perverts like yourself. Sexual indoctrination of children is a crime punishable by death. I hope someone kills you soon you fucking piece of shit.

popular art us still art, but regardless if how emotionally manipulative (and effective) Spider-Man NWH, it doesn't belong in any best picture conversation. It doesn't do anything that actual Oscar winner Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse didnt already fo better. Let the Marvel movies run the table at the MTV and People's Choice award shows. Let the grown ups have the Oscars. please. Do it for Marty!

Short answer: Obviously, yes. Who wants to pay upwards of $10 a person (double that if you visit the concession stand) to watch a movie with a bunch of strangers who may or may not talk through important scenes, text the whole time, or just otherwise mess with your experience entirely?? You're better off shelling out the $20 to catch the movie on VOD in the comfort of your own home, where you can eat/drink whatever you please. You have a perfect view of the screen; you can pause or rewind on a whim...

Great, but how could you miss talking about Bo Peep, maybe the best female icon in recent Pixar movies? She mostly drives the action plus she saves Woody like 10 times.. In a very male actiony way too.

if it's not on Netflix it doesn't matter? Seriously? That sort of rhetoric makes it hard to take any of this conversation seriously. You do realize that of the close to 150 2018 new releases I saw last year, 98 percent were not Netflix originals and a good 85 percent were not on Netflix at all? There is plenty to watch that is not on Netfkix, and of the stuff I saw, its worth noting that 6 of them were in my bottom 10 of the year.

I LOVED seeing Angela Lansbury at the end of this film. She is the same age as Dick Van Dyke (93) and also an icon of at least one live action Disney film of the Mary Poppins era (Bedknob and Broomstick). Seeing her was a delightful surprise for me. I also highly doubt that DvD's dancing was CGI. He is still a very spry guy, and the sequence was very brief. (I wouldn't be surprised if he still dances at home every day. 😁) On the whole, I thought you guys were overly harsh on this movie. My family and I are all big fans of the original, and I expected to be quite critical of this, but I mostly found it sweet and charming. I liked the Meryl Streep sequence too. My biggest criticism was the villian(s) - Colin Firth and his animated coynterpart - who seemed to just be evil for evil's sake. The original film didn't really have that: the capitalist bankers came off as misguided, but not really evil, and there was a sense of redemption for Mr. Banks at the end. As far as Emily Blunt is concerned, I felt she made the role her own and did a great job. I wish there had been a bit more of her in the film.
